A Home Away From Home
That’s what Life Pieces To Masterpieces (LPTM) provides to the hundreds of African American young men and boys growing up in Washington, DC’s most poverty-stricken and volatile neighborhoods.

Join us and help ensure that every child in our community has a strong support system and the prospect of big dreams and a bright future. Learn more
